Tribute to Leuc the Bald Eagle - A True Ambassador

Over the years, many of you have had the chance to "meet" our winged ambassador Leuc the bald eagle.  He was the first to "greet" any visitors who came to our location on the St Paul campus. 

It is with heavy heart that we let you know Leuc passed away very quietly and unexpectedly this week.  Veterinary staff was present and efforts to revive him were started immediately. Preliminary necropsy results indicate a ruptured aneurysm. 

TRC volunteer Neil Ross wrote this tribute to a true ambassador.  Leuc was the face of TRC for many years.  He will be remembered as an important part of TRC's history, for all that he did to further the understanding of his wild eagle cousins.
